Shuffle | Four Tet | Beautiful Rewind


Shuffle | Four Tet

A man of prolific output, Four Tet (a.k.a. Keiran Hebden) is back in the newsfeeds today thanks to a freshly uploaded live stream of his new LP, Beautiful Rewind, out officially on  his own Text label October 15. UPDATE: Looks as if the stream has been taken down.

An initial spins reveals a slightly more introverted turn from last year's Pink, navigating away from the dance floor to a degree. The UK producer maintains his precision and propulsion here, picking up the torch where ambient farewell "Pinnacles" left us, but this time letting it cool to a 5am smolder.

The focused reverence for techno and garage is still the focus on Beautiful Rewind, much more so than with Rounds or There is Love in You anyway, but Hebden has rubbed his productions raw with time. Intermittent chatter, coos, and distorted rap samples surface throughout, but at first glance, the star on Four Tet's latest appears to be his one-two punch of twisted percussive programming and haunting atmospherics.
